What will our future libraries look like?

The City of Kalamunda is actively engaging with community members to determine the current level of satisfaction with their local library. The evidence gained will inform future directions to meet the needs of users, including library infrastructure and programs offered.

The City is also keen to understand why some residents don’t access library facilities and what they would like to see offered to make them more relevant in the future.

Recently, the library service group has been undergoing restructuring, with a new business model proposed, incorporating a community arts and cultural focus; together with a more fluid business model between the libraries and other services where staff and projects might operate interchangeably across locations.

The City’s libraries are currently located at four key locations in Kalamunda, Forrestfield, Lesmurdie and High Wycombe.

There is an opportunity for new community infrastructure to be created incorporating modern smart technology – a one-stop community hub that offers a diverse range of services and is readily adaptable for a rapidly changing world. This is even more relevant given the current climate with coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions and the significant challenges in conducting a physical only library services model.

Residents and library users are encouraged to complete the survey below before Monday 1 June 2020.
